The $13.6 million grant-funded project will capture runoff water on its way to the Bay to prevent flooding and remove pollutants. The town says construction is scheduled to start in July 2019, and last about 14 months. The project will generate noise, dust, construction traffic and temporary road closures, town officials warn.
While design is still being developed, the facility is now proposed to go under the park's baseball outfield.
At ci.atherton.ca.us/watercapture more information, including a video showing construction of a similar facility, is available.
